Governor Bryant Speaks at Legislative Luncheon
Today, Governor Phil Bryant spoke in front of a group of city leaders, business leaders and elected officials giving updates on the business climate in Mississippi and the Gulf Coast.
Bryant was the guest speaker at this afternoon’s Legislative Luncheon hosted by the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce.
The bulk of Governor Bryant’s keynote speech was focused on business development in South Mississippi, noting that the Coast’s revenues increased by 6.4% since this time last year.
Governor Bryant praised the Port of Gulfport for the new gantry cranes and the return of Chiquita. He also talked about the $17 million aquarium to be built right in our backyard and much more. “This is a coast of opportunity. A coast of enjoyment. A coast of loving people who don’t mind sharing what we have. We’re going to continue to work hard to make sure that all the world knows this is the place to come and to be and to bring the business.”
This year’s event was held at the Hospitality Resort Management Center at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Jefferson Davis campus.
